There are parts of me
as yet undiscovered
maybe unfathomable,
even to my
most earnest introspection
as I render the map
that is me,
my heights, valleys,
and boundaries.
Leading to moments
when I surprise myself,
how far I have come
from when I was lost,
and what I have learned
along the way.
Knowing this to be true
I try to see in others
that same potential
for discovering something
new about them
witnessing and sharing
as they discover
new things about themselves,
ever expanding my map
of human experience.
